Here’s the short answer: It depends. If you ask me whether cam websites are fun to be at? Hell yes! If you want to know why read here confira o Live Cam Link aqui. If you ask me whether you should pay for it or not? I can’t give you a straight answer.

The first thing you have to look at is whether you have the financial capacity to pay for such services. Are you in a place where you can afford to spend money on extras? Then, by all means, give it a shot, and I’m sure you’ll love it. If you can’t even buy your own groceries at this point, best, try your luck next time.

Or better yet, stick to free but 100% legit cam websites – they’re loads of fun, and they also won’t break the bank! I’ll tell you more about them later after I made sure of one thing: Do you even understand what cam sites are?

What is a cam website?

For all you noobs thinking, “Why the hell is this guy talking about webcams? Cam site? A place that sells webcams or something? Big deal.”

If you are thinking along those lines too, then I feel sorry for all the years you were oblivious about the existence of these ultimate websites for adults. There’s no way in hell I’d spend my time writing about websites that sell webcams. 

By cam sites, I’m talking about sexy girls fulfilling every man’s fantasy on the other side of your computer screens. I swear this thing is so hot someone ought to change that “A” in cam to “U” (I know you know what I mean!).

Anyway, for the sake of explaining to all our readers here, cam (short for webcam) sites are online entertainment platforms made by adults, for adults (https://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/22/technology/intimacy-on-the-web-with-a-crowd.html). I’m sure you have scoured the internet for every porn site in existence, and by now, you are probably pretty bored of seeing the same scenarios over and over again?

Seriously, a bullied kid gang banged by a whole football team?

An office secretary getting hot and heavy with her stern-looking boss?

NEXT, PLEASE! These fantastical stories are for boys who are still oblivious to the kinks and fetishes the adult world has to offer. Also, just admit that porn actors are not really the best at what they do, aka “acting.” Everything looks so forced and impersonal that any guy who’s spent hours watching adult videos would sleep on it. 

Cam websites offer something different – a sexually arousing experience in real-time.

Live vs. Pre-recorded porn

Don’t you feel weird watching porn from 2005? Like man, you are jerking off some hot girl who’s probably in her late forties now and has grandkids (unless you are into that kind of thing). When you watch porn films and shows, you don’t even know when those videos were shot! It’s okay when you don’t think too much about it – but when you do, it’s just kind of awkward.

Also, porn flicks don’t even care about you. You are like a third-party peeping on something that you shouldn’t be watching (although that’s kind of hot too, now that I think about it). Anyway, if you are the type of guy who’s hungry for attention, being a passive, horny observer may not work out well for you.

This is why cam sites reign supreme among adult pleasure materials on the net. They have piping hot girls live on camera, making your fantasies come alive in real-time. They also talk and engage with you, so you are not just there to peep without permission. They 100% know you’re watching, and they proceed to give you a great show anyway!

Many cam sites offer free admission, so you can check out different rooms without having to pay half your life savings! If you’re looking to release a lot of steam, free webcam sites are the way to go. 

Now, if you want those girls to do something for you, it becomes a different story. Cam sites thrive from customers’ tips. So, when your fave girl is giving you some love, you might as well give her some back to show your support!

Anyway, you can always check out free cam sites online – just be sure to do your research before paying anyone anything!

Special to the Times

LOS ANGELES – A federal judge in Albuquerque sentenced a Torreón man to 12 years and five months in prison for driving his car while intoxicated and causing an accident in 2018 that resulted in the death of three people and serious injuries to three others.

Allen Lewis, 26, agreed to plead guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter and assault of a minor with a deadly weapon in August of 2019. Sentencing was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to court records, Navajo Police learned just after midnight on April 17, 2018, of the two-car accident that occurred on Route 9 between Pueblo Pintado and Tinnian, New Mexico. Initial reports said that two minors and one adult died at the scene.

Three survivors were flown to the University of New Mexico Trauma Center in Albuquerque. Court records listed the driver of the other vehicle as a 41-year-old woman with the initials of M.N.S. The passenger seat was occupied by a 42-year-old man with the initials of J.B. There were three minors in the back seat, ages 14, 10 and four. Police interviewed a couple after the accident who said they were driving on Route 9 about 9:10 p.m. when they came upon an accident involving two cars.

They said they observed five people in one vehicle, all of whom seemed to be seriously injured. The female witness said she then checked the other vehicle and found a man later identified as Lewis inside. She told police that he appeared to be intoxicated. She said she flagged down an oncoming vehicle and asked them to call 911. Dead at the scene were the two adults in the first car and their 14-year-old daughter.

The two other children were among those airlifted to the hospital. Lewis was also airlifted to the hospital. The extent of the injuries for the three survivors was not noted. A preliminary investigation at the scene revealed that the Lewis vehicle was driving north on Route 9 when his car swerved into the wrong land in front of the car containing the family. The driver tried to avoid contact but was unsuccessful.

The Lewis vehicle struck the other vehicle on the passenger side. Later, hospital staff informed police that Lewis had a blood alcohol level of .147 when he was admitted three hours after the accident.

A couple of days later, Lewis was interviewed at the hospital. He told police he had left Crownpoint about 8:30 p.m. and had stopped along the road to consume approximately 16 ounces of alcohol. He said he must have gone back on the road after that but he didn’t remember doing so. He said what he remembered was going to sleep after he drank the alcohol and then waking back up in the ambulance.

In his plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office, he sought a prison sentence of 12 years so the final sentencing was only five months higher. A sentencing memo said he had no criminal record before the accident.

His attorney described Lewis as “hard-working, kind and quiet with a gentle spirit.” He didn’t drink until he was 21 and he quit drinking a little later when he realized it was causing problems with his life and relationship with other people. But as is common among alcohol abusers, the first time he quit drinking was not the last time he quit.

His physical handicaps, however, caused him to struggle every day of his life, causing him to start drinking again in 2017, his attorney said. The memo said Lewis suffers from a rare ailment that “cases him to suffer headaches, vertigo and dizzy spells throughout the day.”

He also suffers from tinnitus, which causes him to hear clicks and buzzes throughout the day. The condition also amplifies any loud sounds that occur in his immediate surroundings. As a result, he is not able to work around machinery. Although he had three years of college, these health problems prevented him from getting a job and from 2015 until his arrest in 2018, he stayed at home acting as a caregiver for his grandmother.

The memo said Lewis is ready to accept the consequences of his actions on that day but “there is no amount of time he can spend incarcerated that would heal the wounds of the profound grief” of the family of those killed and who continue to suffer. He said after he serves his sentence, he hopes to get his college degree and then work in the home health field.

Jewelry seller’s repeat violations lead to arrest

By Bill Donovan
Special to the Times

LOS ANGELES – A Tuba City woman is facing federal charges for selling merchandise at the Grand Canyon without a permit. Sandra Manygoats, no age given, was arrested on Feb. 8 by a park ranger who came upon her selling jewelry to tourists. Usually a crime like this results in a citation but Manygoats was arrested because this was not the first time she had been found in the park selling without a permit.

Park Ranger Shane Barton said he was patrolling the park when he saw Manygoats surrounded by three blankets which had Navajo jewelry taped on them. He said he also saw prices near each item.

When Manygoats saw Barton, she began rolling up the blankets and stopped when Barton told her to leave the blankets alone. While checking her identification, Barton asked her if she had ever been cited in the past for selling without a permit. She responded that she had been cited before but that was a long time ago. She added that she knew it was illegal. But when Barton checked up on her, he discovered that there was an outstanding warrant for her arrest for a previous citation for selling without a permit.

Usually, persons are cited and not arrested but since she had failed to show up to deal with the previous hearing, she was arrested. Selling without a permit carries a fine of $530. Park records showed that Manygoats was cited on July 29, 2019 after being caught by another park ranger selling jewelry to tourists without a permit.

In this case, the ranger saw her actually talk to several tourists and exchange jewelry for money with two of them. He checked the park’s records and found she had been given a verbal warning to stop selling jewelry. She said at that time she realized that selling jewelry without a permit was not allowed.

Shiprock man gets 15 years for murder

By Bill Donovan
Special to the Times

LOS ANGELES – A Shiprock man who pleaded guilty to murdering another Shiprock man has been sentenced to 15 years in federal prison.

Zachariah Stanley Joe, 29, was arrested on Jan. 3, 2019, in connection with the stabbing death of a 33-year-old man identified in court records only as B.M.M. The court records indicate that there were several witnesses to the altercation between the two men. One of the witnesses said he was drinking alcohol with B.M.M. the afternoon he was killed.

The drinking took place at the witness’s home near the That’s A Burger restaurant in Shiprock. In the early evening hours Joe had texted him saying he was leaving his job at Burger King and wanted to come over.

He arrived a little later “intoxicated and extremely upset,” according to the report, about being fired that day from his job. He continued to complain about losing his job throughout the evening, said the witness, and at one point stuck B.M.M. across the face, knocking him into a wood-burning stove and then onto the floor. He said Joe started heading for B.M.M. again planning to continue the beating but the witness said before he got there, the witness intervened, punching Joe in the face several times.

The witness said he then wrestled Joe to the ground, giving B.M.M. time to leave the residence. He said Joe then locked the door with him inside and B.M.M. and the witness outside. The witness said he then heard a lot of noises coming from inside his house indicating Joe was searching his kitchen cabinet drawers by opening them in a violent manner. The witness said he was so upset that his house had been invaded that he ran to Joe’s house nearby and broke a window.

When he got back to his house, he said he saw Joe standing over B.M.M.’s body. He said two other people showed up a little later to take B.M.M. to the hospital. A little later the police arrived and arrested him for breaking the window at Joe’s house.

One of the persons who took B.M.M. to the hospital told FBI agents later that he was driving with a friend when they saw Joe beating up B.M.M. He said he saw Joe standing and kicking B.M.M. while he was on the ground.

He said he got out of his car and approached Joe and pushed him back. He said he observed B.M.M. to be unresponsive and then heard Joe say something like B.M.M. had been stabbed. As the two were putting B.M.M. into their car, they realized that B.M.M. was bleeding under his many layers of clothes. Later when police searched the residence for evidence, they found that the wood-burning stove had been knocked off its base.

They also discovered that one of the kitchen knives was missing. In his plea agreement, Joe admitted he had stabbed B.M.M. in “callous and wanton disregard for human life.” According to court records, B.M.M. had been stabbed 10 times in the chest and neck. He died shortly after he reached the hospital. Joe was arrested that night and charged with murder. In the plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Injured hiker rescued off Mt. Elden

KAFF News

FLAGSTAFF – There was a search and rescue attempt Feb. 11 in the area of the Fat Man’s Loop Trail on the south side of Mt. Elden in East Flagstaff. Coconino County Sheriff’s officials say search and rescue crews, with aid from a DPS helicopter, located an injured hiker who was stranded on the mountain. Rescuers did their best to find the injured hiker by using information from the man’s cell phone to call 911 prior to his phone dying. They also gathered tips from people in the area.

Crews were unable to bring the man off the mountain that night so rescue personnel and a paramedic with the Flagstaff Fire Department made sure he was comfortable and stayed with him overnight until they could short haul him off the mountain the next morning.

The patient and crew were given sleeping bags, warm clothing, a warm meal and liquids, along with pain medication. Once off the mountain, the hiker was taken to Flagstaff Medical Center and was treated for a severely broken ankle.

Once the hiker was taken off the mountain, conditions became too windy to bring rescue crews down by helicopter. They hiked to the top of Mt. Elden and were taken off the mountain by tracked vehicles from off or Mount Elden Lookout Road.

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Joe Biden plans to distribute millions of face masks to Americans in communities hard hit by the coronavirus starting next month as part of his efforts to ensure “fairness” in the government’s response to the pandemic.

Biden, who like Donald Trump’s administration has considered sending masks to all Americans, is instead taking a more conservative approach, aiming to reach underserved communities and those suffering the brunt of the epidemic. The Trump administration has completely abandoned the plans.

Biden’s plan will distribute masks not by mail, but rather through federally licensed community health centers and food bank and pantry systems nationwide, the White House said on Wednesday.

The Departments of Defense, Health and Human Services, and Agriculture will help distribute more than 25 million U.S.-made sheet masks in adult and child sizes. The White House estimates that they will reach 12 to 15 million people.

“Not all Americans regularly wear masks, not all have access to them, and not all masks are created equal,” White House COVID-19 coordinator Jeff Zients said.

The White House is not distributing safer N95 masks, of which the United States now has a plentiful supply after shortages at the start of the pandemic.

Sheet masks adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and “they certainly meet the requirements set by our federal standard,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

Biden hinted at the move Tuesday during a virtual roundtable Tuesday with four essential workers who are black, saying he expected his administration to send millions of masks to people across the country “very shortly “.

Biden urged all Americans to wear face masks for the first 100 days of his tenure, pointing to models showing it could help save 50,000 lives. He also demanded that the mask be worn in federal buildings and on public transport in order to slow the spread of the virus.

At the end of January, a Quinnipiac poll showed that 75% of Americans reported wearing a mask all the time when going out in public and around other people, and an additional 12% said they wear a mask most of the time.

Biden made a virtue of his public mask-wearing demonstrations, in direct contrast to Trump, who was only rarely seen covering his face while he was president. Biden also demanded the use of masks around the White House, unlike Trump, whose White House has seen at least three virus outbreaks.

Psaki suggested earlier this month that logistical issues underpin the decision to cut plans to send masks to all Americans.

“I think there are underlying questions about how you target them – the masks – where they go first; obviously that couldn’t happen immediately, ”she said.

HOUSTON – Do you ever scroll when you should be doing something else?

Marriage and family therapist Tracy Lehman of Nick Finnegan Counseling said there are studies to show a direct link between social media and depression, anxiety, body image issues and suicide.

Here are ways to tell that your use of social media is harming your health:

YOU ARE BOMBARDED WITH IMAGES THAT MAKE THE LOOK OF OTHERS ARE BETTER

Have you ever given a “like” to something that you are genuinely jealous of? This is called hatred.

“We have it constantly in our face like ‘you fail, this person has it, why don’t you have it?’” Lehman said.

She said social class is more obvious / damaging than it was before. When someone has a seemingly nicer home, neighborhood, or family, “it’s probably a bit of acknowledging that you get a bigger picture of the world than you normally would. “

A d

YOU AGREE TO CHECK YOUR PHONE OR CHECK WITHOUT THINKING

Make coffee? You scroll. Stand in line ? You scroll. Some people even break the law by looking at their phones while driving.

Lehman said it is because we are now programmed to do so.

“[The repeated use of social media] fracture our attention zone in our brain, ”Lehman said. “Even adult brains are swayed by that… I mean, you’ll notice people are going to check and they literally just checked three minutes ago. The average brain knows they are on social media for an average of four hours a day and will pause every three minutes to try and watch something.

YOU ARE ADDICTED TO GETTING LIKES

Apps are designed to get you hooked, and no one is immune.

“Getting a ‘like’ or receiving a notification gives you a dopamine response which is the same thing that happens with drugs or whatever makes us feel good…” said Lehman. “We constantly want to get it. those dopamine shots, and so we’re going to check (over and over) because we want to because… it’s this reinforcement system. Even in a casino, the signal to stop is that you have run out of money. Law? Your brain says “I can’t do this anymore”. We don’t have that with social media. it will last forever.

A d

TURN IT OFF

Set limits.

“We’re saying at the table we’re not going to use a phone or if there’s a meal up,” Lehman said. “There are times when you stop yourself from looking at it. “

You can also delete apps from your phone or hide them in a folder so you don’t see them, and as a result, you’re more attentive when checking out social media, Lehman recommends.

IDAHO FALLS – An Idaho Falls man has died after being shot and killed by a police officer in his backyard early Monday morning as police searched for a suspect.

The incident began around midnight when a Bonneville County Sheriff’s Deputy conducted a traffic stop on First Street, Idaho Falls Police Department Chief Bryce Johnson said at a press conference Monday afternoon.

The passenger in the vehicle, whose name has not been released, ran and an assistant followed. Additional officers were called to the area and a manhunt ensued. During the chase, a man in his backyard was shot and killed by an Idaho Falls police officer.

“The information shared at this point is not intended to attribute blame or necessarily explain what happened,” Johnson said. “There are outstanding questions to which the answers are not currently available. “

Court records show the suspect was arrested for a broken tail light. The vehicle turned onto Lincoln Drive and the suspect jumped out the passenger side door as the car stopped.

The deputy ran after the suspect, who then crossed a backyard on Lincoln Drive. As the suspect jumped over a fence, the deputy lost sight of him. The deputy radioed to other officers where the suspect was going and that he was wearing a black shirt with khaki pants, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The police invaded the area in search of the suspect. Johnson said a Holbrook Drive resident spotted the suspect walking through a yard and believed he was carrying a gun. This information was then transmitted to the officers on their radios.

A map of Monday morning events

As police searched for the suspect, they learned that he had several arrest warrants against him and a violent history with law enforcement, including a warrant for bodily harm on an officer.

An Idaho Falls police officer spoke to a man who lived at the corner of Tendoy and Syringa alleys. The officer reportedly said he was looking for a person who was running away from a traffic stop and was in the area.

Police also spoke to the woman who was in the car with the suspect. According to Johnson, the woman showed law enforcement a message from the suspect sharing his GPS location. The GPS ping placed the suspect in the backyard of a house on the corner of Tendoy and Syringa alleys.

The police surrounded the house and drew their weapons. Officers heard screams and approached the backyard, Johnson said, and found a man in a black shirt carrying a gun.

“We currently don’t have answers on what exactly happened during those times,” Johnson said. “We know that during this interaction, an Idaho Falls police officer discharged his duty rifle, firing a shot that hit the man.”

The man, whom EastIdahoNews.com does not currently identify, lived at the house and was not the suspect. He was the same man the police had spoken to earlier.

Police and paramedics tried to save his life, but to no avail.

Shortly after the shooting, police found the suspect hiding in a hangar at a house on Linden Drive. Officers arrested the man and he was incarcerated in Bonneville County Jail on his warrants. He was also cited for the offense of resisting arrest, according to court records.

“There are no words to express how heavy our hearts are today,” Johnson said. “This situation is devastating and tragic for the family, for the officer and for those who love and care for him. We all feel the weight of what happened today. Our sincere condolences go out to the family and friends of those involved, especially the family of the deceased. “

Johnson did not disclose the name of the officer who fired the gun, but he has been placed on administrative leave and will not return to duty during the investigation.

“The Idaho Falls Police Department has core values ​​- one of those values ​​being integrity,” Johnson said. “When we define integrity, it means being honest and truthful at all times, even when the truths we need to tell may be difficult. Today, the truths we need to share with the community are difficult and incredibly tragic. “

After the shooting, the Eastern Idaho Critical Incident Task Force was called in to investigate the shooting. The task force is made up of officers from several agencies, with the Idaho State Police leading this particular investigation.

Once the task force has completed its investigation, its report is forwarded to the Bonneville County District Attorney’s Office, which will determine whether the shooting was legally justified.

Johnson said the department was also conducting an internal investigation. A board, which includes three civilians, reviews the case to see if the officer followed ministry policy.

More information, including body camera images, is unlikely to be released until investigations are completed.

“It’s a tough day, a tragic day,” Johnson said. “The family, as you can imagine, is in our prayers. I just don’t have words for it – the same with the officers involved. Sometimes everyone does what they think is right. Tragedies happen.

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate on Friday morning approved a measure that would allow Democrats to bolster President Joe Biden’s $ 1.9 trillion coronavirus relief plan across the chamber without the backing of Republicans. Vice-President Kamala Harris presided over the tie-breaker, her first.

Democrats in the House applauded after Harris announced the 51-50 vote around 5:30 a.m.

The budget now returns to the House, where it will need to be re-approved due to the changes made by the Senate. The final passage will unlock the next drafting phase of the virus relief bill, with the work being divided among several congressional committees.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer DN.Y. called the adoption of the resolution “the first big step in getting our country back on track.”

Moving forward on a fast track, Democrats’ goal is to have COVID relief approved by March, when additional unemployment aid and other pandemic aid expires. It’s an aggressive schedule that will test the ability of the new administration and Congress to deliver on its promises.

The stimulus incentive comes amid further signs of a weakening US economy. Employers added just 49,000 jobs in January, after cutting 227,000 jobs in December, the Labor Department said on Friday. Restaurants, retailers, manufacturers and even the healthcare industry laid off workers last month, with state and local governments firing unschooled employees as well.

The unemployment rate fell to 6.3% from 6.7%, but there was a drop in the number of people working or looking for work, a sign that some people are dropping out of the labor market. The US economy has about 12 million fewer jobs than its pre-pandemic trends.

Biden, who has met with lawmakers in recent days to discuss the package, will meet at the White House on Friday with the chairmen of the House committees that will develop the bill as part of the budget process known as “reconciliation. “.

Biden also plans to make remarks on the economy on Friday as he keeps pressure on Congress to “act big” on his bailout plan.

With a growing number of deaths from the virus and a strained economy, the president’s goal is to have COVID-19 relief approved by March, when additional unemployment aid and other relief measures are in place. pandemic cases will expire. Money for vaccine distributions, direct payments to households, the reopening of schools and business support are at stake.

The Senate marathon session brought test votes on several Democratic priorities, including a minimum wage of $ 15. The Senate by voice vote passed an amendment by Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, opposed to wage increases during the pandemic. Ernst said an increase in wages at this time would be “devastating” for small businesses.

None of the budget amendments bind Democrats when they draft their COVID plan, but passing a pay hike could prove difficult. While a $ 15 salary may overcome the procedural challenges of the final bill, passing it will require the support of all Senate Democrats 50-50, which could be a tall order.

Senator Bernie Sanders, a strong supporter of wage increases, has promised to move forward. “We must end the starvation wage crisis,” he said.

$ 2,000 Stimulus Checks: Here’s Who May Be Eligible https://www.sisterfriends-together.org/2000-stimulus-checks-heres-who-may-be-eligible/ https://www.sisterfriends-together.org/2000-stimulus-checks-heres-who-may-be-eligible/#respond Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:42:32 +0000 https://www.sisterfriends-together.org/2000-stimulus-checks-heres-who-may-be-eligible/ through: Austin Kellerman, Nexstar Media Wire Posted: Jan 13, 2021 / 3:44 PM EST / Update: Jan 13, 2021 / 3:44 PM EST President Donald Trump’s name appears on coronavirus economic aid checks that have been sent to citizens across the country.

WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) – President-elect Joe Biden is expected to unveil a coronavirus relief plan on Thursday that includes the largest direct payment yet: $ 2,000 for most Americans.

Although the current price of the package is unknown, it is expected to include an extension of unemployment assistance, assistance to local and state governments, a boost to small businesses, funding for vaccine distribution and schools, and a third set of stimulus checks.

While a check for $ 2,000 might sound good, many people wonder if they would qualify. The short answer at the moment is that we don’t know. This information could be available as early as Thursday – and, of course, it could change during the debate.

With different thresholds for the first two payments, a plan passed in the House following pressure from President Trump for larger payments instead of $ 600 checks can provide us with a framework of qualifications.

Under this chamber, there was a phase-out structure. However, people earning up to $ 115,000 per year would still receive payment because of the higher amount on the check.

Marc Goldwin, senior policy director at the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, tweeted a breakdown of the $ 2,000 payments and how they work under the House proposal. Couples with children would qualify for the higher amount – up to $ 14,000 for a couple earning less than $ 150.00 with five children.

The previously adopted House plan also made it possible for adult dependents, such as college-age students, to be eligible for the $ 2,000 check.

Of course, just because it was a proposal from the Democratic-controlled House, doesn’t mean it will be Biden’s plan. However, it does provide a basis for what we might see.

Analysts say the vote on Biden’s stimulus package should give us some idea of ​​whether or not Republicans will work with the Democratic majority or collectively draw a line in the sand.

West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin has indicated that he is not in favor of issuing large checks. Last week, he told the Washington Post, “absolutely not” about the idea of ​​direct payments with such a high financial figure that are not specifically targeted.

Days later, he appeared to temper his tone during an appearance on CNN.

“It’s not a yes or no question,” Manchin told Jake Tapper on Sunday. “How is the money we invest now going to best help us find jobs and find work?” And I can’t tell you that sending another check is going to do that to somebody who already has a check.

Last week, Biden told voters in Georgia that if Democrats win these races, stimulus checks of $ 2,000 would be on the way for most Americans.

Eventually it happened, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer reinforced that the money was on the way.

“One of the first things I want to do when our new senators are seated is hand over the $ 2,000 checks to American families,” Schumer, who will become majority leader, said on Wednesday.

Previously, the Senate and GOP-controlled Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had been the biggest obstacle to securing larger direct payments.

So when could this $ 2,000 payment become a reality? Probably early February at the earliest. Results in Georgia should first be certified before the new senators take their seats. Republicans are expected to file calls for the results. The deadline to certify the results is January 22, according to Yahoo News.

May 1 is a new tentative date; breakwater needs repair

The opening of the McPhee boat launch has been postponed to May 1 in order to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The Journal file

The McPhee Reservoir boating season has been delayed to minimize the impact and spread of the novel coronavirus.

The opening date for the McPhee boat launch has been pushed back to May 1, according to the San Juan National Forest, which manages the lake’s recreation. The deadline may be extended after examination.

The House Creek boat launch is still scheduled to open on May 1 for use Friday through Monday.

“These management actions aim to protect public health and safety and to align with national and local measures already in place to contain the COVID-19 epidemic,” according to a press release.

Forestry officials fear people will congregate at the boat launch, parking lot and inspection posts, creating a risk of the disease spreading, officials said.

In addition, the breakwater at the McPhee boat launch and Marina was damaged by a winter storm, forest and Montezuma County officials said.

The cables that connect the floating tires are broken and must be repaired before the marina opens. The damage will be assessed by the forestry authorities in order to determine a repair plan.

San Juan Forest remains open

Unmanaged trails and trailheads in the San Juan National Forest remain open to the public and will be monitored to ensure alignment with COVID-19 guidelines from federal, state and local authorities.

Given the demonstrated risk of exposure to the coronavirus from large, concentrated gatherings of people, the San Juan National Forest temporarily discourages continued recreational use of the National Forest.

“The safe and responsible use of the national forest has never been more important in reducing the impacts on local communities likely to be exposed to the virus,” according to the press release. “Visitors should be prepared for limited services such as toilets and garbage collection and should be prepared to pack all garbage and human waste. “

All motorized and towed boats at McPhee must pass through an aquatic nuisance boat inspection station before launching.

“Colorado is one of the few states in the country that has no adult mussel infestations in any of its waters,” said Elizabeth Brown, invasive species program manager for CPW. “This is directly attributable to our mandatory inspection and decontamination program which has been in place for over a decade now. “

Boaters are reminded not to travel long distances to boating or fishing as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect Colorado. Recreate in local tanks according to Governor Jared Polis’ Stay-at-Home Order.

How to set up parental controls on any phone or tablet https://www.sisterfriends-together.org/how-to-set-up-parental-controls-on-any-phone-or-tablet/ https://www.sisterfriends-together.org/how-to-set-up-parental-controls-on-any-phone-or-tablet/#respond Sun, 28 Mar 2021 22:42:32 +0000 https://www.sisterfriends-together.org/how-to-set-up-parental-controls-on-any-phone-or-tablet/ If you’ve been hanging out with young people lately, you’ll know that they love flat, glossy touchscreens just as much as the rest of us.

If you’ve been hanging out with young people lately, you’ll know that they love flat, glossy touchscreens just as much as the rest of us. This means that a son, daughter, nephew or niece will not hesitate to “borrow” your phone or tablet, or possibly ask for a device from him.

Whether you’re giving your phone to a nagging toddler or sorting out a new tablet for your kids, you’ll need to protect the device from unhealthy content, unauthorized purchases, and more. Fortunately, it is not that difficult. Here is what you need to do.

Childproof Android Phones and Tablets

Let’s start with a quick fix that you can use if a child you care for wants to borrow your phone. This is called app pinning, and it’s been part of stock Android since version 5.0. First, head to the Security menu in Settings and turn the App pinning option At. When you do, one second rocker switch will appear, activate it. Then, app users will need to use the same method you use to unlock your phone before they access the rest of your apps.

One caveat: Even though app pinning limits external users to one app, that app may open another and your operating system won’t be able to stop it. If you let your little nephew borrow your phone to play, you probably won’t have to worry about your privacy. But if you realize that your device is now in a language you don’t speak, now you know why.

We don’t know of any kid who wouldn’t love to listen to a new episode of PopSci’s “The Strangest Thing I Learned This Week” podcast. Sandra Gutierrez G.

Once app pinning is enabled, load the app or game you want to pin, then swipe up to see the app carousel. Press the round icon at the top of the preview and choose Pin. To unpin, swipe down from the bottom of the screen again and your phone will go straight to the lock screen and ask for your PIN, pattern, or pretty face to unlock it.

Pinning apps is a good temporary fix, but if you want to go for something more comprehensive, you can set up a dedicated user account for a frequent guest. Open System then go to Advanced. There, choose Multiple usersturn it rocker switch on, and finally, on Add user. It doesn’t add much in terms of parental controls, but it does create a phone-like experience in a phone, and the new user’s apps and settings will be completely separate from yours. To change accounts, swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Quick settings menu, and then press the button. user icon– it’s to the left of the settings cogwheel. Once there, tap the name of the user you want to switch to.

Android tablets previously had a special “restricted” mode, which allowed parents to control which apps and services their children could use. This was later replaced (on tablets and phones) with Family Link, giving parents more capabilities and even allowing them to remotely control their children’s devices. Recently, Google launched Kids Space, a built-in Safe Mode that, among other features, automatically activates all parental control settings and only gives access to organized and age-appropriate content on YouTube and Google Play. This new feature was originally developed for the Lenovo Smart Tab M10 HD Gen 2 tablet, but the company says it will be coming to other devices soon.

The primary place to find parental controls on Android, whether it’s for your primary user account or the one you’ve set up for your kids, is in the Google Play Store app. Open the main menu of the application, tap Settings, so Parental control, and turn them on. You can set age limits for all content from Google Play, including games, movies, shows, magazines, books, and music.

YouTube has its own set of child protection capabilities. Your best bet for watching kid-friendly videos is the separate YouTube Kids platform, which uses Google’s algorithms and filters to keep toddlers away from things they shouldn’t see (although they failed. in the past). The classic YouTube app had no parental control functionality until recently, when Google launched supervised accounts. This feature is specifically aimed at children who have passed YouTube Kids, but are still too young to use YouTube on their own (in the US, only people 13 years of age or older can legally use the platform without supervision) . This type of supervised account automatically blocks certain content and ad categories, and parents can see their child’s viewing history and set screen timers through Family Link. The feature will be rolled out in the coming months.

If that’s still not enough to keep young people at bay, third-party apps can help bridge the gap. Kids Place and Kids Zone both allow kids to run apps you’ve approved and nothing else, while a tool like AppLock places PIN protection on individual apps, preventing young people from signing up. do anything you don’t want them to do. Meanwhile, apps like MMGuardian allow you to remotely monitor and control activity on your child’s phone. This means that you control which apps can run when, and the software will filter out any inappropriate content from apps and the web.

Childproof iPhones and iPads

In the land of Apple hardware, childproof devices are pretty straightforward. On iOS and iPadOS, there is a feature called Guided Access, which will prevent your kids from switching to other apps without a PIN code. Accessibility in the Settings app. If you’re used to Android, this feature is a lot like app pinning.

When you enable Guided Access, make sure to enable password lock (or biometric protection) and decide how long you want it to stay intact before the screen locks on its own. .

Once enabled, you can initiate Guided Access for any app you or your kids are currently using by triple-tapping the side button Where Home button, depending on your device. At this point, you can also turn off certain areas of the screen, lock the volume controls, and even set a time limit for the app. Another triple press of the same button will end Guided Access, but your kids won’t be able to escape the app you left them in without your PIN, fingerprint, or face.

Guided Access works for unique apps, whether it’s on your personal device or specifically for your kids. Elsewhere, the bulk of Apple’s parental controls can be found in Screen Time. Once you find Screen Time in Settings, go to Content and privacy restrictions. Turn it rocker switch to take control of web browsing, camera usage, App Store purchases, and more. Make sure to set up a Screen Time password to secure your settings, otherwise anyone who finds their way can lift any restrictions you put in place.

The limits you can set here are more comprehensive than on Android. It is possible to block access to Siri and FaceTime, prevent installation or removal of apps, and create a list of approved websites. Also, don’t worry about having to cancel everything when you get your device back – just turn the knob. rocker switch disabled and it will disable any restrictions or limits you have configured. When it’s time to give the device back to a child, turn it on and it will be safe for children.

You will also be able to change the privacy settings of non-Apple apps, like preventing them from accessing your photos or sharing your location, it’s always worth checking that the apps you have on your iPhone or iPad have built-in controls. . If you can’t narrow down an app to your satisfaction, you might want to remove it entirely or find a kid-friendly alternative like YouTube Kids.

IOS restrictions
If you don’t want to allow someone to access all of these apps on your iPhone, just turn off the switches. David Nield / Popular Science

You won’t find the same range of parental control apps on the iOS app store as you do on Android, because Apple’s mobile operating system just doesn’t give third-party apps as much control as Google. But there are still control options, such as Norton Family, which is essentially an alternative web browser with additional filtering and monitoring controls. More comprehensive iOS parental control apps require special setup and have mixed reviews, so it’s usually best to stick with what Apple provides.

Overall, iOS has better built-in options for setting limits on your kids, and Android has a better selection of third-party apps. That said, no matter what brand and model of device you’re trying to protect, you should be able to create something that’s suitable for kids of all ages. At the same time, don’t forget the importance of educating children about social media and online safety. Eventually, they’ll be ready to explore the internet without the training wheels, so make sure they stay safe when they do.
